I have installed Awstats v7 to work with IIS stats produced from a Windows
2003 server. All the basics seem to work in that I can generate my html files
as described in the instructions.
The site I'm monitoring is for an internal intranet and I want to exclude the
records generated by our Google Mini search appliance . I have tried several
ways to do this over the last few days using SkipHosts and also SkipUserAgent
The google appliance leaves a iis record as shown below.
2012-04-23 10:21:45 GET /Default.aspx - DOMAIN\username 172.21.160.11 HTTP/1.0 gsa-crawler+(Enterprise;+M2-J8AAAZAKVDDJT;+firstname.lastname@example.org) - 200 12463
I have tried adding a combination of the following
I have also tried changing the User Agent name on the Google Appliance to
googlebot so it match the real google. In all cases I still 172.21.160.11
listed in my host report.
What is also strange if I add SkipHosts="172.21.160.11" and leave
SkipUserAgent="" then run with the -showdropped parameter I see the following
Dropped record (host 188.8.131.52 and 8790 not qualified by SkipHosts): 2012-04-14 00:01:43 GET /web/files/signpost_suite/royal_british_legion.JPG - - 184.108.40.206 HTTP/1.1 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+7.0;+Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64;+Trident/5.0;+SLCC2;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729;+.NET+CLR+3.0.30729;+Media+Center+PC+6.0;+.NET4.0C;+.NET4.0E;+BRI/2;+InfoPath.3;+Microsoft+Outlook+14.0.6117;+ms-office;+MSOffice+14) - 200 8790
Why is it skipping this IP address 220.127.116.11 and it also appears to be
skipping on the sc-byte value of 8790????
Any help would be appreciated, I just want to remove this client from my
Thanks in Advance
